About this presentation – Working Out On Your Chair

Carrie Anne Blevins led the TEDxManhattanBeach through a series of stretching exercises that are performed while being seated. Many jobs involve spending hours of time seated and yet our bodies evolved with the assumption that we would be moving. To help us all improve our vitality and wellness Carrie Anne shows us a 5 minute stretching routine that we can use at the office.
